I wanted to select one picture from the thousands I took this year to designate as 'Best Picture Of The Year'. And I tried to do that....I really did. Unfortunately I couldn't narrow it down to any fewer than 34 pictures. Part of the problem is that there are a lot of different criteria to consider - best subject matter, best memory, best shot technically, etc. Given all of that I figured I'd just share the favorites. If you've got a favorite among these, let me know! Here's a link to the photos in case you have trouble seeing the slideshow.
